    • William S. (50, M, Shoemaker, VA)
      Sarah W. (49, F, VA)
      John (20, M, Laborer, VA)
      Benjamin (17,M, Laborer, VA, attended school within last yr)
      William (14, M, VA, attended school within last yr)
      Virginia (10, F, KY, attended school within last yr)
      James E. (8, M, KY)
      Samuel (6, M, KY)
      Madison (3, M, KY)
      Susan L. (7 mos, F, KY)

      Note that George Madison is listed simply as Madison in this census, and it appears that Susan's name is spelled Sausan L. There is also what appears to be small marks in the column marked "Value of Real Estate Owned" next to William S. Venable's name. I don't know if this means the same amount as the person above him, or simply that there wasn't any real estate for this gentleman. Also, age for William S. would mean that he was born in approximately 1800, not 1804.

    • VENABLE, William -- White, male, 75 years old, head of household, widowed
      VENABLE, William Jr. -- White, male, 30 years old, son, single
      VENABLE, Susan -- White, female, 25 years old, daughter, single

      William is listed as being only 30? This would have meant he was born in 1850..........

      Susan should have been listed as being 30 years old, as she was listed as 7 months old on the 1850 census. However, this may have been done to hide the fact that she was getting older and was still unmarried.
